Years ago, I worked for a newspaper. We typically referred to January as a 'slow news month'. Scrambling for stories, we had morning 'Brainstormings' resulting in random ideas for stories. Almost anything was game to fill the white space.
From what I read, and see on TV, January, continues to be a 'slow news month'. Today, the Today show featured a segment on a staff member's daughter getting bangs cut on air (a la Michelle Obama.) Fascinating, huh?

I read lots and lots of blogs everyday. I think the January Bug is becoming viral.
No judgment peeps, I'm just saying...
if you feel apathetic and uninspired, I get it. The Bug has infected me. I'm juggling a cavalcade of crappy ideas. I pray for The Bug to be over and replaced by resplendent creativity.
The better news is that I do have some cool newly purchased Botanical prints, an exciting trip to Duke University's Nasher Museum of Art to see "Matisse and the Modern Masters", and an interesting staging do-over in the hopper to share.
(Do you think Mrs. President's bangs could be the result of a slow-news-month?)
Hope you escape The Bug.
Happy Friday, y'all!.
